POKERFACE - a traditional Gambier Islands figurine, carved as a pendant. This piece was hand carved for us by Yuri Terenyi and is a work of collectable, ethnic art. It can be worn as a special piece of jewellery or displayed.
The Gambier Islands is an Archipelago in French Polynesia populated with a little over 1300 people. They lie around mid-way between New Zealand and South America in the South Pacific and are a protectorate of France. For lovers of ethnic art this is a wonderful piece!
This is art made to wear at its finest.
